for Art Basel Miami 2009 Mark Murphy group show.

 

based on the myth of Persephone and the creation of the seasons...the god of the Underworld steals Demeter's daughter Persephone away, and as mother looks for daughter, the earth is neglected, causing winter. In my piece, Persephone isn't abducted but goes of her own free will. Thought it would be an interesting direction to take :)
